This is a gorgeous antique walking stick featuring incredible elements made of sterling silver and 12 karat yellow solid gold (not plated).

The shaft of the walking stick is made from a nice, sturdy hardwood that has been stained a gorgeous shade of mahogany red.

The tip, or ferrule, is made from a solid piece of horn. Most modern canes are made with rubber or metal tips, but commemorative canes like this one were often designed to be less functional and more elegant.

We love that this cane has actually seen a lifetime of use and enjoyment.

A sterling silver collar or mount is inset to the cane about two and a half inches below the handle which has been hand engraved with a personal inscription. It reads "P39, F.S.H." on one side and "Sterling" on the opposite.

The handle is by far one of the finest examples we've seen.

It is incredibly substantial and features dazzling and intricate hand chasing throughout. Foliate scrolling on the collar and face frame highly detailed leaves, flowers and even insects around the mid-section.

The top of the handle is riddled with light dents and divots which indicate that the cane was truly used and loved.

Finally, a tiny capital "A" is stamped on the lowest area of the gold collar.

There are some very small surface scratches on the cane's shaft and a light patina on the sterling collar.

Despite these very minor cosmetic issues, the cane remains in exquisite antique condition and would make a wonderfully unique gift or addition to your collection.

The last picture looks like it is pitted, but it is not. Those are shadows of the repousse decoration.

It is absolutely gorgeous.
